Cons

insurance cost lol

55

My Vectra — my vauxhall vectra is a 2 litre sri, so the accelaration etc is rather responsive tbh lol. its costing me rather alot to insure but hey ho its worth it lol. it is very good on fuel for long runs and around town well yer its very good on long journeys lol ;-). it has a few extras it has a gsi front bumper which transforms the whole front end along withthe xeon angel eye headlights, its looks good but discret

Doughnuts Vectra Sri — had a 2.5 v6 sri vectra for 6 years and it never missed a beat, it wasnt the best car for handling but it did have plenty of torque and top speed if you had the balls to pin it to the floor long enough.good comfortable car and it had all the toys on it... heated seats etc etc

enjoying the power and handling

Cons

not much

Gsi's Are Great — fast and cruises great being a V6 ok fuels heavy round town if driven quick but gr8 on the motorway where it can be quite economical seen over 40 mpg coming back from blackpool one weekend when driving at a steady 65 mph

Pros

Performance, usability

Cons

Brakes

Better Than You're Average Family Hatch — I've got the 2.5 V6 model and as far a usuable family hatchbacks go, I don't think you can go too far wrong with it. Itll take a shed load of stuff in the boot, even more with the seats down (when i say shedload, i mean it literally - I broke down an 8x10 shed and fit the lot in there!). Performance is a lot better than average and enought to the a lot of the boy-racer Saxo's and Golf's standing. Few squeeks and groans here and there, but it is 10 years old with 120,000 miles on the clock. Nothing major has fallen off, so can't be too bad. Only downsides are it's a bit narrower inside than some others in the same class and the brakes could do with being upgraded to cope with extra performance of the V6. Bury my foot in the carpet in 2nd and it still puts a smile on my face, even after 4 years.
